You'll be staying on a small organic fruit, vegetable and flower farm. Depending on the season, you can purchase any of these. If time allows, farm tours can be arranged. There is also a one mile loop trail for hiking. You are near the college town of Athens with all the amenities it offers.
Pets are welcome and can be let off leash, but they need to stay near your site as there is a road nearby and farm pets as well.
We want to stress this is really boondocking--no water, electric or sewer hookup and in our beautiful location we are undisturbed by cell phones or wifi. We do offer firewood for sale and will provide a fire pit.
Just be calm and camp on. We would prefer no loud music, and certainly no fireworks.
You have to be able to back up a small hill, about 50 yards, not very steep.
Flat up a small hill on a level location. Four wheel drive not necessary.
For mountain bikers there is the Bailey's bicycle trail in the Wayne National Forest just 15 miles away. Also, Athens has a great bike trial that goes by three local breweries.
Although we did not meet with our hosts personally we were given excellent directions and enjoyed a quiet nights rest in a pleasant little meadow. Thank you so much!
Kindness. Beauty. Comfort. Generosity. Our stay with @docgwood was magical.
We arrived late and were gamely met in Amesville at 9pm and escorted to the camp site. Because of bad weather we were unable to go food shopping beforehand and DocGWood generously provided us with some provisions for us and our two children for the morning.
We woke up to a beautiful day in a quiet, flat patch of cleared brush. We were given a farm tour complete with fresh fruit and vegetables we picked ourselves. We didn’t want to leave but we left anyway for our next adventure, hoping to return soon.
Property is stunning and hosts were extremely responsive and accommodating. Wish we were able to stay for more than one night. I'd love to experience more of the farm and the tasty fruits and vegetables. The asparagus was delicious! If you are visiting on the weekend, don't miss the farmers market!
DocGWood is a congenial host who shared his land, time, and knowledge on a variety of subjects. The site is on a working farm that has a surprising diversity of fruits, vegetables, flowers and trees. During our tour of the farm we met working people who took time away from their tasks to talk with us. Very interesting indeed.
Initially I was a little worried about being able to get go up a small hill and into the spot we parked in.
Our host showed us where we could back into a field to turn around. Plenty of space to do so.
We would love to stay there again.
PS: You can even buy maple syrup made from the trees on their property!
We stayed two nights while visiting state parks and Wayne National Forest in the surrounding area. DocGWood helped us with directions and made us feel very welcome. He answered all our questions and gave us useful tips about the area
A nice quiet place in the woods to relax after a long drive. This is true boondocking, but with the luxury of a nice Firepit provided to enjoy under the stars. We were only there for one night, but enjoyed the nice solitude, but be aware no Cell Service!
The site was grass & we found a great level spot. There is a hill at the entrance. Our F150 & 24ft Travel Trailer had no issues making it up or down (and our Lance trailer has very low clearance). Was a great place to relax, enjoy the fall foliage, etc. We Highly Recommend!
We also have a Special Thanks to a Host who helped us make our family whole again after we lost our 14yr old dog Jake during our travels. We now have 9 month old Jaxson George, only possible through the kindness & willingness of a complete stranger to help us rescue/adopt a dog in his County shelter. We are forever grateful & thankful beyond words. Thank You George!
